Outside the Box Hamantaschen

If you're like me you've made your share of the classic Hamantaschen cookie filled with everything from poppy seed, prune and chocolate fillings. Nothing wrong with those, but check out what is happening to Hamantaschen today: anything from sweet and sour, salty, rainbow colored dough and more!  Here's what I mean...
1. Do you love S'more's but it's not grilling season? Try marshmallows and chocolate in your Hamantaschen.

2. Famous 4th Street delicatessen in Philly adds the poppy seeds right on the cookie dough as well as in the filling. Cakespy

3. Israeli bakeries are giving the classic Purim cookie a personality makeover, introducing flaky crusts and savory new fillings, like goat cheese and pesto. Haaretz 

4. Not only are these filled with a rich chocolate ganache in the center, but chopped chocolate is added to the dough. Martha Stewart

5. Try savory instead of sweet: caramelized onions, tomato, basil and goat cheese make these the perfect appetizer to serve this holiday.  Kosher in the Kitch

6. These Dark Chocolate Ganache with Salted Caramel Drizzle sound awesome! My Jewish Learning

7. The kids will love these Hamantaschen pops. Overtime Cook

8. Nope, they're not cookies--these are Savory Meat Pies shaped like a Hamantaschen. Overtime Cook

9. How cute are these rainbow Hamantaschen? Kitchen Tested

10. Genius! Shape your sushi in a triangle. Busy in Brooklyn

I know I'm inspired. How will you make Hamantaschen this year?


  1. want. them. all. well, except for the sushi, but a novel idea! i actually gave my mom the martha stewart recipe. we put choc chips in them, or peanut butter and chocolate chips, but i would love the chips in the dough. yum!

  2. Great list! Thank you for linking to mine!

  3. hi Rita - still haven't had lunch - I'm getting hungry! Seriously, your blog looks wonderful, and I have a question: Do you have a recipe for the s'mores Hamentaschen? I don't think I can wing it.

  4. I'm glad you included my smore hamentashen in your list of creative ideas. It appears to be the only one you did not attribute to the original source. Can you please link it back to the original recipe on my site?
    Thank you.
